no

The Chevy Celebrity 4 cylinder engine doesn't use a timing belt, it uses a timing gear. To replace the gear it is necessary to remove the camshaft from the engine as it is a press job. To remove the camshaft it is necessary to remove the engine from the car.

Yes, you have to remove the camshaft from the engine to replace the timing gear. The timing gear is pressed both on and off of the camshaft using an arbor or other suitable press. Since there is not room to remove the camshaft in the car the engine has to be out of the car.

In order to replace the camshaft position sensor, you would need to disconnect the electrical plug holding it in. Using a socket, hold down the bolt and remove the camshaft position sensor.

Locate the camshaft sensor in your car. Disconnect the electrical plug on the sensor. Remove the bolt that holds it in place. Twist the the sensor to remove it and place in the new one.

NEED to??? No. But the question becomes, why are you replacing the camshaft? You should always replace the lifters when replacing the camshaft. A worn camshaft usually indicates that there will be other wear as well, but if you just want to squeeze a few more miles out of the engine, you might be able to get by with just replacing the cam and lifters.

first you have to remove the engine from the car, second, remove the head cover and remove the push rod. under the intake manifold, remove the wide cover and remove the hydrolic lifter (you might want to replace them) at the front of the engine (strap side) remove the pully and the pully cover. mark the place of the timing shaft with a pen and remove it from the engine. you can now pull the camshaft out of the engine but be carefull becaus the bearing are really delicate. to replace the rebuitl camshaft, make sure you place it in the right position with the crank shaft gear. there is a mark on the camshat and on the crank shaft that must me align.

Assuming you are asking about a 4.0L engine... Remove the distributor cap. Remove the rotor. Unplug the camshaft positioning sensor from the harness. Lift carefully where the cable feeds through the distributor to the CMP and remove. Put replacement CMP in the same place and connect it to the harness. Replace the rotor and distributor cap.

The cam shaft position sensor is located under the distributor cap. You can replace this easily by undoing the screws holding on the distributor cap, remove and replace the sensor, then just replace the distributor cap.

It's located on the distributor. You don't have to remove the distributor to replace the sensor. Remove the air cleaner, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the distributor cap, disconnect the camshaft position sensor wiring harness, remove the distributor rotor, lift the camshaft position sensor assembly from the distributor housing Camshaft Position Sensor. Installation, Install the camshaft position sensor into the distributor. Align the sensor into the notch on the distributor housing, connect the wiring harness, reinstall the rotor, reinstall the distributor cap. Tighten the mounting screws, reinstall the air cleaner.

Remove ignition transformer to reach it. There should be 2 camshaft position sensors on the 5.4L engine - visibly on the front right cylinder head and the other visibly on the front of the left cylinder head. Remove ,Replace, then return ignition transformer.

Remove engine cover. Remove plastic cover over injectors. Camshaft sensor is in front of the oil filler cap, 3 wire black connector. It's held in by one E-Torx bolt. Remove the bolt and connector and it pulls straight up.

You can find it under the upper timing belt cover next to the camshaft gear. But you do not need to remove the cover to replace it. There is a mounting bolt which you have locate. It should be attached to the cylinder head but it might not easy to reach.
